and vengeance. 

was the deadUest 
hurricane in the history of 
the United States. It 
caused along 

much of the North- 
Central Gulf Coast of the 
United States. At least 
people lost their 
Uves in the and 

floods that followed. The 
storms estimated damages 
amounted to 

making it the 
costUest natural disaster in 
United States history. 

is a 
story that will forever be

"The Candlelight Vigil was an event I personally wanted the students of 
UMES to share. The idea was created first by thinking about the 
number of people who were immediately affected by the hurricane. 
During the summer months, I met with other HBCU students from the 
Gulf Coast to show our HAWK support. I hope that one day the 
families who were displaced due to Hurricane Katrina will be able to 
restore their homes and lives." 
- Terrell Fleming, past SGA President.

and remember 
those who lost 
their lives in

" Lost Treasures of Greece" 

"I paced back and forth in my dressing room, dragging my white embroidered 
gown on the linoleum floor, I realized that my "big day" had arrived. Friday, 
October 20, at 8pm, the night of coronation-the night that I and so many others 
worked so hard to make a success was finally here! 

The Ella Fitzgerald Performing Arts Center filled minute by minute, and with 
each minute, the butterflies in my stomach multiplied. My grandparents, aunts, 
uncles, cousins, and parents were all in attendance. I knew that if this night went 
well it would be a positive reflection on my reign as Miss UMES. 

Coronation is one of the biggest events at UMES. It has long been a campus 
tradition to celebrate the incoming king and queen. The position of Mr. UMES is 
fairly new and did not come about until 1996. 

Coronation gives the Royal Court (organizational kings and queens) the 
Imperial Court (class king and queens) the opportunity to represent their 
organization or class. Mr. and Miss UMES also have the opportunity to thank all 
the individuals who have played a role in their success... 

...It is a tradition to have a theme for coronation, the theme this year was 
"Lost Treasures of Greece." The stage was decorated with live statues, a back 
drop of Greece, a fountain, and a throne on which the Imperial Court, Mr. 
UMES, and I sat... 

..."Ashley, you are ambitious, and I truly admire your determination," said 
Carla Johnson, my mother. The entire night felt like a dream and I truly felt like 
the QUEEN!"

OS A 's Annual 

Leadership Retreat 

On February 16-18, 2007 the Office of Student Activities hosted their 
annual Leadership Retreat titled "Leadership with Style" at the 
University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The student leaders of UMES 
had the oppoilunity to meet with other student leaders on campus and 
also participate in numerous workshops. 

The workshop presenters included Student Activities Director, 
Mr. James Lunnermon, 11, Student Activities Assistant Director. Mr. 
Dwayne Walker, The Minority Scholarship Quest Program Founder, 
Ms. Jessica Johnson, and University Terrace Area Director, Ms. 
Aprille Williams. Each workshop had a specific purpose or goal for 
the student leaders. One of the workshops included Mr. Lunncrmon's 
breakout titled, "Creativity and Advertisement in Leadership." This 
breakout was an activity that encouraged the students to think of 
creative and effective programs that students on campus could 
participate in. The goal was to not choose an activity that is usually 
performed on campus but an activity that would attract most students 
and keep them entertained and informed. 

The Retreat ended with a presentation from the Minority 
Scholar-ship Quest Program that showed students the scholarships that 
go unclaimed each year. This presentation had students excited about 
filling out scholarships and other financial aid. The student leaders of 
this campus were eager and excited to carry the information to their

The Realest Speaker in the 21st Century 

"I got the power, the power is in me!" is 
the phrase Fox Rich used to motivate the 
crowd into beheving that you hold the 
key to your own destiny. After 
overcoming a life full of struggles, Rich 
now travels around the country to 
Historical Black colleges empowering 
young minds to be aware of the 
significance of relationships. Not only the 
relationships you have with others, and 
the relationships you have in your 
community, but most importantly, the 
relationship you have with yourself. 
Her words sent shock waves through the 
audience as she candidly shared her story 
of imprisonment, and now she overcame 
adversity. Fox Rich ended with the quote, 
"It's my world, and I'm going to push," 
letting everyone know that nothing is 
going to change unless you put forth a 
little effort.

The students at UMES welcomed back Eileen Torres, 
the great Salsa dancer and instructor. Eileen as she 
told them to call her, first explained the history of the 
dance. Suprisingly, the dance originated in Africa and 
then was taken on by the hispanic community. The 
dance steps were a challenge and made the student 
sweat, but her enthusiasm made the students excited 
and eager to learn how to SALSA!! Once the students 
learned the basic steps the music came on. Students 
passing by we shocked to see the class moving 
gracefully. One student said, "Is that Ambiance?" This 
experience was a real work out and a lesson that all 
the students who participated will never forget.

Often times you will hear students say "this 
campus is boring," or "I have nothing to do." 
Well in this section I would like to show you 
where students "hang out" on campus. The 
Office of Student Activities spends countless 
hours planning events and activities for the 
students. They show some of the latest movies 
in the universities' movie theater and host 
parties in Tawes Gym. Motivational speaker 
like Fox Rich and Latin Dance instructor 
Eileen Torres are just a few people that the 
Office of Student Activities has brought to 
entertain and motivate the campus 
community. Each week is filled of events, 
games, movies and social activities for the 
students. The majority of the events take 
place inside the Student Services Center (SSC) 
in either the rotunda or ballroom.

The Game Room and Bowling Alley are located inside the Student Services 
Center. This area gives the students the opportunity to play ping-pong, chess 
and checkers. The game room is also equipped with a billiard room and 
arcade wall. The bowling alley is another exciting feature of the SSC. At 
night, students can listen to the latest songs and bowl under the black lights. 
Students can pay for all these services with their HAWK cards or spare

The Hawk's Nest also offers 
the students the option to eat 
in the dining hall, which is 
equipped with several 
televisions. This area is great 
for meeting with friends or 
with colleagues while enjoying 
a meal cooked fresh from 
open grill. 

The Hawk's Nest gives the 
students the option to 
purchase combo meals such as 
chicken wings and french fries 
or the famous cheese steak 
subs or the fried fish 

Students can enjoy a well balanced breakfast, a delicious lunch an 
esqusite dinner with options of numerous meats, vegetables and pastas. 
After dinner students can taste icecream , cake, pie, and cookies made 
fresh by dining services. 

The dining service staff 
prepares breakfast, lunch, and 
dinner for the students 
starting at 7;30am. 

While dining students can 
watch the latest music videos, 
eatch up on their favorite 
sports team or watch national 
or local news on the "Cafes" 
numerous televisions. 

HangOut Spots 4 1 


Aside from the Student Services Center, the Waters Hall computer lab is 
the other social hub of the UMES. Built in 1950, Waters Halls was the 
cafeteria and dining facility until 2001, when renovation began. The 
transformation from cafeteria to state-of-the-art information technology 
center, began in 2002 and was completed in April 2004. Now students can 
come to Waters Hall to check their e-mails, type papers and lab reports, do 
their math homework on Math Excel, bust most importantly get on 

One can also seek technical assistance from the qualified members of the 
Information Technology department. The coffee shop was recently added 
to Waters Hall, where students can purchase hot or cold beverages and 
pastries, to keep their stomachs' from rumbling while they are hard at work. 

Water's Hall is an environment for 
students to study and do 
homework on the computers and 
in the lobby area. 

The Hall also has a fully functional 
coffe shop that ser\es hot fresh 
coffee, tea. and cappicino along 
with bagels and muffins. 
During final exams the hours of 
operation change to meet the needs 
of students. Most nights during 
exams the hall is open twenty-four 
hours for those late night studiers.

organizations colors and paraphernalia. The crowd responded] 
with the same enthusiasm when an organization would bust out^ 
with their chant or "call." But what started this competition ofi 
steps? i 

Stepping began with groups of guys singing acappella, and' 
l^en groups like the Temptations and the Four Tops were^ 
't)opular in the 50's and 60's brothers started mimicking theiil 
steps. This was how stepping evolved. This is why it is calledl 
"Stepping" now. Brothers would try to come up with the best 
steps while they were singing to please the ladies. If you got th^ 
ladies you got more recruits. M 

Much like it is today. 9 

I Others say that stepping replaced the doo woop sounds m 
ibardigan sweaters of the 50's. At around the same time as^H 
|;"Black Power" Movements and Africa centered movements of 
J60's, stepping started to flourish with the incorporation of som& 
[traditional African ritual dancing and the incorporation of othei: 
lelements like cheer leading, tap, gymnastics, etc. Over the years 
^stepping has become very intricate and demanding, incorporating 
fe^s, high levels of gymnastics and other elements found in 
L sports. Please note that some people want to give the credit 
e South African Boot Dance, but it would be ui " " 
fthing tliat stepping was in the beginning and it,

Entertainment Connection put together a Casino ; , 
the students. The baUroom was transformed into a i^a^ 
Vegas casino with a taste of New Orlean's Mardi Gras. j 
Each student that entered the casino was given fakq 
money to gamble at the black jack tables, or the craps table! 
or play poker. Once the students lost all their money the>^ 
could release that anger by sumo wresthng with a friend^ 
The students would put on sumo wrestling outfits and stei^ 
into a ring and wrestle until they passed out fronife 
exhaustion. After losing all your money and your energy 
you could go to the bar and have a virgin strawberr^ 
daiquiri prepared by The Office of Student Activities and 
SGA. While enjoying their daiquiri and some frestl 
jmapcom, students could wait in Hne to have theil 
gcature drawn by two artists. ' 

Office of Student Activates and the Studen 

iment Association once again put together an even 

it entertained the students in a safe environment an( 
towed them to experience something different and

ES HAWKS flocked iipi^a«iym f) 

lecoming Pep Rally. In attendance was Student 

Ivities Director James Lunnermon II, Student 

bmment Association President Mauresha 

jticer, Miss UMES, Ashley Johnson, and a host of 

led HAWKS geared up for Homecoming. 

|ents had the opportunity to participate in 

lierous events including a free throw shooting 

^Jest, a "Chicken Noodle Soup" or "Walk it Out" 

i;lx)ntest and UMES own Basketball All Star Game. 

Students were encouraged to participate in the event 

and show their HAWK PRIDE. The HAWKS were 

getting excited for the week full of fun activities and 

fahe Homecoming Game. The Pep Rally was a little 

^different from the Old School Pep Rally put on by 

the Alumni. The "New School" Pep Rally consisted 

of the latest music played by the DJ and a dai^ 

[contest. But one thing still remained, HA\\W 





aturday, Febmaill)llMli,lipiiii,', the Alumni of Ul 
pved the young Hawks how they use to do their 
.mvailies back when the university was Maryland L- 
iCoUege. Before the event began, former hawks soared into 
iTawes Gym and beginning remanising about past pe] 
iraUies and football games. One Hawk talked about th. 
I homecoming parades that took place in the town o 
I Princess Anne. Former queens of different organization! 
[got together and began talking about the "good times" they^ 
Jhad representing their organization. The alumni camf 
Idressed in the best Maryland State paraphemaha and wave' 

their pom-poms and UMES fans. fl 

P The event began with the infamous funeral proces^^ 

The purpose of the funeral is to symbolize the death of th^ 

I opponent that they were playing that day. The corpse fol 
the day was the Morgan State Bear. The Hawk "Comeback! 
Choir sang Hawk Hymns as the family of the deceased 
(Morgan Bear) walked in, along with the Hawk Clergy. The 
obituary was read by Mrs. Rev. Abba Dabba Blue and the 
leulogy was given by Bishop Spiked Ike and the always 
^entertaining Rev. Abba Dabba Blue. 

The Old School Pep Rally brought back fond memtfflj 
'*'^.the former HAWKS and showed the current HA>^^ 
w to "Shu-Wa" and to really have HAWK PRIDE!! \

with the completion of their matriculation at our institution of higher 
learning. During your final year at the University of Maryland 
Eastern Shore you encountered many different obstacles that were 
placed in your path, but you found the guidance, searched for the 
wisdom of others, and acquired the strength from within to complete 
those requirements. On the day that you walk across stage, your 
name entered onto Hst of alumni that made this university great. As 
graduates, you have accomplished a task that only a small percentage 
of our population have obtained. Remember you experience here 
and that success within arms reached because it is easier to succeed 
than it is to fail. 

As a university, we made progressive strives into the right direction 
with administration, staff and the surrounding communities. 
Continue to help the university with its maturing to a level of 
greatness that is destined for UMES. 

In Conclusion, a HAWK is a student

The Year 2006 -2007 was a year full of excitement and loss. 
The Indianapolis Colts fans finally won a Super Bowl and 
President George W. Bush continued to send troops to help 
fight the war in Iraq. The world mourned the loss of some 
great musicians like Gerald Levert and James Brown. The 
Hurricane Katrina survivors are still seeking assistance from 
the US government and gas prices continue to rise. 

In this technology era computer "Geeks" were excited to 
welcome Microsoft's new program Vista. Television companies 
competed to see who could make the thinnest plasma or LCD 
television. This year was also exciting for new drivers. Lexus 
developed a car that could parallel park itself. It was the only 
car of it type to do so. Most family vans were being equipped 
with DVD players and TV monitors. SUVs were getting larger 
despite the price of gas. 

The Ipod continued to amaze it fans by developing the I 
Phone, which combined the famous Ipod and the new 
technology of a cell phone. Not only could you now send e-mail 
and do a powerpoint presentation on your phone but you could 
now listen to you favorite song or watch your favorite television 

In the entertainment world, Bob Barker, the longtime host of 
the show the Price is Right decided to retire after 35 years as the

female artist and her fiance Jay Z came out of retirement with 
the album "Kingdom Come." 

These facts are just news today but when you look at this 
book ten or twenty years from now these facts will be apart of 
your history. These will be stories that you will tell your 
children and grandchildren over and over. So enjoy and 
remember where you were when these events took place.
